-Exhibition Booth Overview-
We will set up a booth with the motif of the Yamaha Ginza store in a location overlooking the Eiffel Tower of “Parareal Paris”. Sparkling musical instruments dance around and overhead the building, and the glass-enclosed entrance rotates to welcome guests.
1st floor: Trial floor
We will exhibit 3D instruments modeled from Yamaha electric guitars, bass guitars, drum sets, alto saxophones, grand pianos, Line 6 guitar amps, and Ampeg bass amps. In addition to being able to view the finely reproduced instruments in detail from any angle, you can also try out the instruments on display. You can enjoy playing musical instruments in a lively space where Yamaha Music School’s character “Pupple and Friends” will appear.
During the period, employees who actually work at Yamaha stores will appear at the booth for a limited time. You can communicate with employees who usually cannot meet unless you go to the store on VR. [Image 2
2nd Floor: Vocaloid Floor
This is a floor with respect for creators and fans involved in vocaloid culture. In addition to introducing the latest “VOCALOID(TM) 6”, a character photo booth will be set up. You can take a picture with Hatsune Miku and Megpoid life-size panels. In addition, Yamaha’s live distribution equipment “AG series”, which is very popular among streamers, will be displayed as a 3D item, and a live distribution of the video “I tried dancing” of the famous Vocaloid producer, PinocchioP’s representative work “Kamippoi na”. We have prepared content that allows you to have a simulated experience. When you touch the “AG series”, the visitor’s avatar will be sucked into the monitor, and the avatar will dance in the monitor with the PV of “Kamippo na” in the background.
Virtual live performances and dialogue events will be held in a space that mimics the Yamaha Ginza studio. During times other than when the event is held, you can freely see the 3D musical instruments displayed on the studio stage.
